Adam 12

'Let It Bleed" was the Rolling Stones' farewell to the 1960's, and opening with the Vietnam War-evoking "Gimme Shelter" is certainly a bold way to make a statement. Add in Merry Clayton's vocal solo, and you've got quite possibly the best opening album track of the '60s.

The Rolling Stones recently reissued their classic, somewhat controversial Rock and Roll Circus, and it looks and sounds pretty damn good.

 

Originally recorded in 1968, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus didn’t see the light of day until 1996 for a variety of reasons: the Stones weren’t on their game, the Who–one of the many acts the band had invited to perform–arguably upstaged Mick & Co., and it features Brian Jones final performance before his untimely death in 1969.

 

The reissue also features songs from Jethro Tull, Marianne Faithful and Taj Mahal, some of which are seeing release for the first time. Dig into “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” below.
